Have Questions?
How many items can I check out?

OverDrive and Libby allow 60 checkouts at a time. You may also place up to 60 items on hold in OverDrive and Libby. Hoopla offers five checkouts per month. Digital checkouts on any app do not count against your total print material checkouts.

How long can I borrow ebooks and audiobooks?

Hoopla ebooks, audiobooks and comics checkout for three weeks and Hoopla music checks out for seven days. OverDrive and Libby titles check out for three weeks. Everything returns automatically on the due date. OverDrive and Libby do allow renewals if no one else is waiting to borrow the title.

Why are there wait lists for digital content?

Some of our ebook and media collections, like OverDrive and Libby, are limited to one copy per user. To keep wait lists from getting too long, we try to buy multiple copies per person waiting. Everything on Hoopla is available for immediate checkout, with no waiting, so you may want to start your ebook search with Hoopla. However, not every title is available on Hoopla due to licensing restrictions.
